After speaking to multiple tutoring companies, we discovered Matthew. Matthew was very professional and made my son feel comfortable. They had a total of 5 tutoring sessions covering Math, English, Science and Reading. My son took the ACT after his tutoring sessions and scored a 23. We were very pleased with the progress our son made by going from an ACT score of 19 to 23 after only 5 sessions with Matthew. I would highly recommend Matthew J. Horwich to anyone needing tutoring.

Matthew explained his approach to coaching and the plan so we were able to make an educated choice on the best tutor for our son. Matthew was responsive, organized and worked very well with our son. He communicated directly with our son and cc:ed me so that I was aware of the plan and f/u. His scores did improve on the SAT and we were pleased with the investment.

Matt has been awesome for my student. His math skills have improved greatly, and his writing has come from illegible to what can now be described as neat and readable. Matt has been very patient and deliberate with our son and has taken the time to really explain things to Jake in a way he can understand. We would recommend this tutor to any parent looking for a tutor for their grammar school student! Matt is also reliable and prompt and showed up when expected which was helpful with our very busy schedules.

Stephanie offers just the right mix of vocal technique theory / practice and useful marketing insights in her engaging, didactic and entertaining classes. She has also shown herself to be clearly attuned to the specific skills I want to develop professionally and has set up my classes to meet these exact needs. I throughly enjoy the various lesson readings (and the fact that she sends prep work ahead of time), the flexibility she offers for class scheduling, and her overall approach to teaching.
I love to teach accent reduction! My students are amazed once they learn how Americans really speak and that they can learn to speak like that too. From the first few classes, you will find that your attention is immediately drawn to how you are pronouncing not only individual words but complete sentences, and how your ear will quickly become attuned to the reductions and links that Americans make. Our lessons will be based on the book American Accent Training, and the very first lesson will be a diagnostic test so that we can see what areas you need to focus on first. It's really fun and exciting to see how quickly your accent develops into one that people can understand better and that you feel more confident using. Let's do this!
Hello! I'm excited to have the chance to help you with your English! I'm a native speaker from Cleveland, OH in the USA and have ten years of experience teaching Accent Reduction and ESL. I've got a BA in Spanish and a Master's in Education with a Graduate Certificate in TESL. My students LOVE me a lot and I always receive high ratings. I also speak fluent Spanish and I'm learning French and Russian, so I know the challenge of mastering a foreign language.
My favorite area to teach is pronunciation and accent reduction, but I can also help you with grammar, reading, writing, idioms, phrasal verbs, vocabulary... you name it! Need help with a presentation? Want me to check your emails? I'm happy to help. In addition, I like to have fun when I teach so that you have fun as you learn. We can incorporate tongue twisters, video, poems, or wh
atever you are passionate about. IMPORTANT: I am a very light-hearted person. At the same time, I am responsible as a teacher, but if you are a person who takes life very seriously, I may not be a good fit for you.
I've also got an Associate's degree in nursing and a background in business, as I was the owner of a food business for 3 1/2 years. So I'd be happy to focus on either medical or business vocabulary if you like. Currently, I live in Mexico with my husband and our pooch, Flaco. I was away from teaching for a few years but I'm happy to be back into it and meeting new friends from all over the world. Like you!
NOTE ABOUT SCHEDULING: in order to get the most benefit in as short a time as possible, I recommend scheduling classes 2 to 3 times a week for 30 to 60 minutes.
